*There is a slight difference between what is offered at a state clinic and a private clinic. The government clinics do not offer some vaccinations such as Chickenpox or Hepatitis A.

**Although the school-going vaccines can be done together at age 6, it is sometimes preferable to do the MMR at age 5 and the tetanus booster at age 6 as it is quite traumatic for a 6 year old to have 2 injections at the same time.
